My office in Sydney is all the more special at that time of day as I look at the harbour, soak in the constant flow of trains going through and watch the cars flow to a point where they stop, as traffic becomes jammed as everyone rushes to work at the same time.
Instead, they step it up, take control, become better organised and push boundaries.
How does that happen?
Why? Why do people we love and cherish have to go? Why can't they stay? Why do they need to go when you are so unprepared to say goodbye?
I can't pretend to understand. I don't. I won't.
Many of us make new year's resolutions - mostly ones that last a few days and are soon forgotten.
But there is one that often creates change, and that is the desire to have a new job, change direction and do something that is more fulfilling.
It's amazing what some companies can do in 10 short years, but more importantly, how they empower their people to produce outstanding results year-on-year, completely on-track to the company's overall mission.
Now, if you must stay in a hotel, then you usually either want your normal comforts or you look for something different to what you already have at home. Something better, sometimes something just different.
I was driving along Dandenong Road yesterday in Melbourne, talking to a girlfriend of mine and I said, "if someone really knew me, and was the love of my life and was to propose, they would hand me a Tolstoy book, as the token of their love."
She laughed, "and you say you don't have lists!".
We try in ernst to be up-to-date and continually upskill our people, but it doesn't always work out to plan, particularly when they are busy doing their day jobs.
That's why it's so important for marketers at all levels to take time out of their day to work on themselves and their capabilities in marketing each and every week as part of their routine.
We are presently looking for a talented marketing executive in Sydney. Someone with one to two years' experience, with a passion for being the best marketer possible.
As a company we have so much to offer our young team, and we know that they will learn more at Marketing Eye than possibly any other position in marketing elsewhere.
We have had the most amazing experiences, namely through our people and clients, who constantly amaze me with their insights, perserverence and determination to kick goals.
I have so much to do as I have alluded to in previous blogs; Marketing Eye's expansion plans, Licensing the Marketing Eye model, a new technology platform that I have developed and a new tech company that I am about to go into capital raising mode for. On top of that, I have my passion project, The World Incubator, and selfishly a holiday overseas to the snowfields.
